European and U.S. policies in Central Asia: Will transatlantic cooperation work in Central Asia towards and beyond 2014? @ Permanent Representation of the Republic of Poland to the European Union
The seminar aims to bring together experts and policy-makers from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss the connecting points and divergences of policies of the European Union and the U.S. in Central Asia. Both have similar – though not identical – interests and objectives inCentral Asia but their policy-approaches differ substantially. What can be done in terms of cooperation and coordination in the light of the NATO draw-down from Afghanistan and how can both partners cooperate in Central Asia post-2014?

During the seminar EUCAM will also present its latest Working Paper: The Afghanistan-Central Asia relationship: what role for the EU?
